. this is about america. it is about the future we're going to leave to our children. we thank you and we ask you to stay at it all the way to the finish line because we're going to win on tuesday night. [cheers and applause] you know the closing hours of a campaign have a dynamic all their own. a lot of voters have known for some time who they were going to vote for but there are others just now putting aside the demands of their daily life and considering how their vote will affect their own life, the life of their children, and of course the course of the country that we love. and we asked them and you, to look beyond the speeches, and the attacks and the ads, look to the record, to the accomplishments and the failures, and the judgements. words are cheap. a record is real and it's earned with real effort. [cheers and applause] real change is not measured in words. real change is measured in achievements and four years ago candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he has fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attackin

petraeus resigned his post as america's top spy. the scandal is widening. the woman in yellow, jill kelly, alerting a friend of hers that works in the fbi to threatening e-mails she says she was getting turning out to come from broadwell, part of an investigation involving another high-profile member of the military. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, john allen. the defense secretary leon panetta says the pentagon has launched an internal investigation into thousands of quote, inappropriate communications between general allen right there on the screen and that woman in yellow, kelly. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington. you almost need like one of those boards to put all the pictures up, catherine. >> reporter: you do rick. beyond the issue of failing to notify congress about the fbi investigation the democratic chair of the senate intelligence committee is threatening to subpoena a report summarizing director petraeus's trip to libya when he personally looked into the fwauz gauze attack. he personally interviewed cia staff on the ground in libya i
or bad we do is my income. this notion of $250,000 being top 2% or the wealthy people in america ignores the way most small businesses work in america. >> reporter: i mentioned president obama is going out on the trail, if you will in pennsylvania to sell his arguments. one would expect we would hear some sort of response from speaker john boehner after that. jon. jon: what are the democrats saying? i mean about these g.o.p. complaints? what is your response? >> reporter: they are saying republicans if you don't like the president's plan, where is your own plan? they are asking for specifics on revenue in terms of tax revenue. they are also asking for specifics on what republicans want to do to entitlements. house democratic leader nancy pelosi is not talking about more spending cuts. >> the president has been clear and we support him on holding firm to the 250 tax cuts -- expiration of tax cuts for people making over $250,000 a year. that would be part of a big, bold and balanced package that has big cuts. we've already voted for over a trillion dollars in cuts. revenues are needed and
to actually have a budget for the first time in four years for the united states of america. and again, barack obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a p
. thank you. can a full-blown war are avoided and what test the escalating violence does to america. the israeli tanks are massing. it appears they are poised for an invasion of gaza, that doesn't necessarily mean it will take place. what is the next step here? >> to me clearly, jon it's going to get worse before it gets worse, because the goals that harass and israel have are fundamentally opposed to one another. the israelis are determined as they did in 08 and 0 the this time to avoid a ground war and create deterrence, to force hamas to understand that there is a punishing cost for using these high trajectory weapons. hamas is determined to survive, keep themselves intact no matter what the israelis do and pick up political points from the egyptians, the turks, all of which legit myselfed and sanctioned hamas' resistance. the key here it seems to me is whether or not the egyptians can find a way to lean on hamas sufficiently and whether or not the israelis are prepared to give the egyptians additional time and space to do so. that really is the dynamic in play here today. jon: s

it away from things that were no longer working as america changed. i think that's what the republicans will have to do. they were very successful in the latter part of the 20th century. they have to reapply their values, to a new america, a new economy, i want to agree with ka*eufplt you can see some of those leaders out there, bobby jindal and chris christie, and susana martinez, there is a very strong next bench for the republicans that could lead the generational change that is going to happen. it may not be a 20-year process but i don't think it will snap back right away. jon: it seemed to me that governor romney put out a pretty positive campaign talked about, you know, the middle class and trying to restore people. how much of this is -- i don't know, how much of this is the trashing of the romney campaign at the hands of some of the democratic-leaning groups who put out all that advertising? >> i don't think that's what it is, jon. i think it would be negligent for the current leaders, the grassroots of the party not to look at what went wrong. it shouldn't be driven by paid con
was a way to sort of show the power, show the middle east that in fact america is still lock step with israel and that there is power in the two of them working in concert. >> oh, i don't know about the word lock step when you talk about president obama and benjamin netanyahu. i think the first thing they could do if they are in lock step is stop yelling at each other. >> they have to put forth a united front at the very least. we understand, i fully am aware of how tenuous that relationship is, but they were able to come together on some sort of agreement, however layered it is we are not sure at this point, that remains to be seen, but in terms of posing a force in front of morsi, they've got to be in concert together, do you agree? >> well, i thought it was interesting that morsi had actually manufactured the cease-fire before secretary of state clinton arrived, but out of just deference to the united states both morsi and benjamin netanyahu waited until secretary of state clinton was there until they announced it, which really meant we didn't have as much power as we have in t
